In Thee O Lord Do I Put My Trust

I'm led today to continue to dwell on positives in my life and to trust in God for all the rest. Although I find it difficult to accept (I'm afraid I take some criticism very much to heart), I'm encouraged by others today simply to dwell close to Him, knowing that it's my relationship with the Lord that is the fundamental thing, not what others may tell me or believe. It doesn't matter what others think or say; what their opinion of me is; it is God I serve and will continue to serve.
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favour He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
I'm still battling against the negatives in my own life but I trust in the Lord to see me through this week.
